Every day you make - or fail to make - decisions that could have a lasting impact on your happiness. By taking this course, you give yourself the best possible chance of making decisions that help you, and your family, to achieve maximum sustainable happiness - happiness not just in the present but throughout your life. The Happiness Checklist will help you to make the most of every situation.
There are challenges, though: globalisation, off-shoring, climate change, terrorism, spiralling debt, credit crises, the loss of jobs to robots and computers ...; a lot is going on, and it isn't happening with a view to making you happy. Positive thinking and optimism are not enough. The Happiness Checklist will help you to reflect, plan and take action to give yourself the best possible chance of happiness.
But, of course, happiness does not only depend on your situation. What happens inside your head is as, if not more, important than your circumstances. In The Happiness Checklist, you will learn how to manage your emotional drivers so that you build a solid foundation of contentment, your happiness baseline. You will also discover how to take control of the automatic, unconscious processes in your brain that can distort your thinking.
A Realistic and Personal Approach
There are plenty of books and courses in the self-help genre promising everlasting happiness; all you have to do is think positively and follow a few simple steps. Unfortunately, these quick-fix, off-the-shelf, instant solutions rarely work. Achieving real sustainable happiness requires analysis, reflection and effort. How could it be otherwise? Your personality, emotional triggers, interests, values, desires, thought processes and skills are unique. As is your context: wealth, family, social connections, career and qualifications. You have to discover your own personal route to happiness.
The Happiness Checklist can help you to do this
Robust and Concise
The principles of The Happiness Checklist are derived from the latest findings from neuroscience and psychology, complemented by the wisdom of some of the great philosophers. They have been honed and refined in the real-world through my work as a coach with capable and challenging individuals from over 30 countries. There is no padding with anecdotes or extended descriptions of research studies (references are provided). This is the distilled essence of my research and experience regarding what it takes to achieve maximum sustainable happiness.
